Better Together Hawaii Blood Drive

Every two seconds, someone needs blood.  Donations are critical and needed to maintain an adequate supply to fulfill Hawaii's needs. To help restore the island's low blood supply, Ala Moana Center partnered with the Blood Bank of Hawaii to host a Blood Drive, held on Sunday, September 27. We're grateful for all those in the community who gave of their time and blood to help save lives.
